Sounds good to me. My current vdr box needs upgrading at some point and it has 
started doing hard lockups in the psat few weeks (I suspect the PSU is on the 
way out. Rather than trying to track that down, maybe it's a hint that I need 
to upgrade to a new system!

Is this running in a client-server setup? I.e. DVB devices in another box and 
then using the libxineoutput plugin? Does this setup give you full OSD access 
to timer programming, etc., from the client? (I think that is all meant to be 
straightforward but does it work in practice?!)

Cheers,

Laz
